It used to be so easy to upload an epub file from indesign to amazon kdp, and the conversion to mobi would happen right there, within amazon. Now, apparently, Amazon is making one use kindle create, which makes one upload word docs, and use one of their templates. One has to recreate much of the styling, as well as place images anew. Don't even get me started on footnotes with hyperlinks! I used to be able to create an entire indesign book for print, and then save another copy of that book, and save it as an e-book. Now, one can't do that. It seems I have to create a whole new book just for kindle. Has anyone mastered this, or can set me straight?
In your ebook, you say to only use EPUB 3. Do you know if Indd CC 2022 exports to epub using epub3? If not, how can I find out?
ID supports both EPUB 2 and 3, and in both fixed (FXL) and Reflowable. All have their place (sometimes just for legacy support) but EPUB3/Reflowable is the only recommended path to Kindle.
I've been exporting using reflowable. Should I just ASSUME that's Epub3?
When you Export (Ctrl-E), the first option is file save format, and you want EPUB/Reflowable.
In the Export menu that follows, the top selection is Version: EPUB 2.0.1 or 3.0.
This is is not (usually) one of the settings that occasionally resets itself, so choosing v3 once should keep it that way.
